The late Queeny Chang led an extraordinary life. Her autobiography, first published in 1981, introduces readers to a time when ladies led a genteel way of life.
In this book, Queeny Chang presents a vision of a way of life that has long since vanished. Her tender memoir opens the windows of time and allows the images of the old world charm of the early 1900s to be seen again.
She paints colourful portraits of her family, relatives, and many friends, particularly of her strong-minded but fastidious and flamboyant mother. What she had to say to her life with her famous father, the late Mr. Tjong A Fie (a prominent businessman and leader of the Chinese community in Medan, Indonesia) is both fascinating and touching.
Here is a story of a gentle woman, very real, warm and sincere.
